Health First Foundation Helping the Wildcat Extended Day Program
We at Health First Foundation – Northern Arizona, where health and mental well-being drive our mission, have 92 percent of our fundraising goal with matching funds for Wildcat Extended Day at West Sedona School, and this is why it’s good for you to take us over the top to the full $50,000. (That means asking all you good people to help so we get the last $4,500.) It’s urgent: we only have until Wednesday, July 8.
First, we as community members benefit because many of these children have parents who staff our stores, restaurants, and galleries, and other businesses. If they know their child is being nourished, nurtured, taught self-reliance and healthy habits from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., they aren’t missing work and they aren’t distracted.
Second, employers benefit because when the worker drives in from somewhere else to a town with no day care, they can count on dependable employees relying on Wildcat Extended Day.
Third, students who could fall into destructive patterns (statistics back this up) as young as fourth and fifth grade are instead potential future scholarship winners and future business leaders, with tools to cope instead of being left alone unsupervised.
Finally, we benefit as a community hoping to attract a more robust health services sector: we can assure professionals with families that an excellent program waits to serve their needs.
For how to give (and be twice as generous because of our matching funds) please see our website: healthfirstforall.org/extended-day-program-matters. There is also a place to donate in the name of an employee who has a student at the school, or the student.
If you have questions feel free to reach out to me, Lisa Schnebly at firstname.lastname@example.org. And thank you, so much.
